WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- An American Red Cross volunteer from Lake Geneva is heading to Puerto Rico Wednesday, Sept. 21 to help with hurricane relief.

Dianna Trush has family there, so you can imagine just how meaningful this deployment is to her.

Wednesday morning she'll leave out of O'Hare International Airport in Illinois to help the island begin to rebuild.

"My friend from San Sebastian, my brother said that all the plantains, banana trees and everything were all gone," said Trush. "That, that's the main thing for them that had happened. They had to replant things."

Trush is a retired nurse with 40 years of experience and she says she's being sent to a large hospital.
